red espresso® RCP Filter Basket

R156.52 (ex. VAT)


Custom-made portafilter basket. Perfect extraction every time.

Our custom-made portafilter basket has been specifically designed to work with red espresso®. It delivers a perfect red espresso® shot – thick, rich crema and stronger flavour.

How does it work? The RCP basket has fewer holes than a typical coffee portafilter basket, which helps slow the extraction to produce a rich, bold shot of red espresso® more consistently.
